real achievements in business, they show how he would try to run the country. they give us a look at what his tax policy would really be and what he believes in. mitt romney, i don't think, is making the case to the american people that he would be a president that americans can trust. it's all about the tax return. number one, i would like to know, how is he listed? general partner? president, owner? ceo? and then he signed it. i assume he signed his own tax return, even if he had somebody put it together, even if it's 500 pages. and the other thing is the business deductions. did mitt romney have any business deductions that dealt with bain capital? because if he did, he was flat-out lying to the american people when he said he had no n involvement. and maybe mitt romney has made the political calculation that it's just a heck of a lot safer and a hell of a lot easier to lie to the american people than it is to the internal revenue service. get your cell phones out, i want to know what you think. tonight's question -- this is a good one -- what will do more damage to mitt romney

of our department was laid off within a few months. the rest of us sweated every friday wondering when we would receive our layoff dates. we were finally all let go on march 11, 2011. four months after my layoff," she continues, "my husband was advised the rest of his department is being laid off after the job duties were transitioned to an offshore si site. my daughter, myself and my husband are all looking for work. we have four generations," virginia says, "living in our home. i have no idea what will hatch to all of us -- happen to all of us if none of us can find work. my husband served his time in the army and he and i have always worked full-time steady jobs. it feels like we're being punished for spending our lives working to take care of our family and keep a roof over our heads." and she continues, "america needs jobs. we want to work and need to work." and she points exclamation points in. "we are not lazy. instead, we are innovators and always have been. we need to regain our pride in our country, help each other and quit focusing on greed." virginia says, "my mother reminded
is that while afghanistan is very important to us, we should not and will not desert it the way we did 20 years ago. we have scaled back a lot. if the wrong person is elected, and the wrong political process in sues, there are no guarantees. there are no guarantees, and the afghans should not have any guarantee of our commitment. if they are trumped by the presidential process that is correct, then i think all bets are off. and i make this argument with some reluctance, because i am to agree arguing against those who say this, but that it is a lot recker gives us maybe 10% to 20% less to make afghanistan succeed. it is a hard argument to make. the taliban could come back. it does matter to us a lot. but we should not think that if the afghans in a terrible decisions that we can rescue them. i think it is worth trying to get that message through. >> 2.5 minutes for the hardest question of the day. ok. on the first issue about the british, there was a period where they seemed to be operating on its own. there is a pretty tied together strategy. i am really pretty impressed right now. i do not thi
be defeated, the love god and the will of the people. >> earlier tonight, i spoke with a man who served two u.s. presidents as the american ambassador to syria. i asked ambassador edward deregin what he thinks this defection says about the disability of syria's leadership. take a listen. >> i think these are the beginning indications of the dissent within the syrian government and regime that is now beginning to surface. when you begin to have high level defections like this and also manaf tlas, a general very close to the assad family, it indicates that the divisions within the government are beginning to surface and i think we can anticipate more defections in the future. >> dow? >> when defections like this begin to occur, the political perception that the regime is being weakened from within is very important. and that can take on a momentum of its own. so it's not so much the importance of one or two or three people defecting, but it's the growing perception that the divisions within the regime are coming to the floor and the regime is beginning to weaken from within. >> who is calling for
winds that are bringing some of that rain here to us and probably will for much of the day? >> yeah, that on-shore flow is what kept us so damp yesterday and kept our temperatures down and kept the clouds in and we saw some pretty heavy rain across the area. fortunately, this is going to start to break apart. while we are starting off with that pattern once again, we're hoping to dry out. again, it's the afternoon. yesterday, high temperatures barely made it into the upper 60's and low 70's and with that very moist low coming off the northeast. today we're starting off in the 60's once again but expected to move into the mid 80's this afternoon. fog and drizzle to start off the day. if i'm optimistic, afternoon sunshine, a few breaks for it. you spend most of the day under the cloud cover. at least we're starting to warm things up. this is all great news to get all this rain helping us bring us out of the drought. details on that when we come back in the seven-day forecast. >> our big story this morning, as police and federal agents continue their investigation in aurora, colorado,
be a reason why the prosecution is looking at this. saying it is good for us, too. >> in that sense they will dissect it. there is an anticipation that mr. zimmerman will testify in his case. any juror who saw this and if he goes to trial and not testify, why didn't he testify under oath? he was not under oath. it is it high stakes and in terms of getting his message across they were affective. steve stove his parents will join gretch with their reaction. jeb bush was at a couple of locations in ohio akron and hamilton, ohio. we hear so much about big government. that's one of the problems today with america. he said mitt romney is the man to fix things. >> policies of higher taxes and government and involvement in the regulatory environment of the economy and deficits where leadership is required to fix them and the president is missing in action created a morass and a dark cloud over our country that can be lifted by restoring american great theness and thos what i believe mitt romney will do on day one. >> gretchin: there is it a lot of discussion based on the president's comment
. i talked to the secretary and we are better off, i don't talk to those people because we used to do training and security. we know. the fact is we are not any safer than we were before 9/11. >>shepard: the goal is to make us "feel" safer? >>guest: absolutely, like what bush did by putting two guys holding empty m-16's at the gates right after 9/11. all for show. >>shepard: well that is a dose of reality. nice to see you again, thank you, mike. >> one of the largest banks now accused of helping terrorists and drug dealers move billions and believe it or not, trillions of dollars. and the government agency responsible for watching that bank did nothing. that's next. also, the united states has doublinged the number of mine sweeping ships in the persian gulf. what is the pentagon expecting? the medicare debate continues in washington... ...more talk on social security... ...but washington isn't talking to the american people.

and refrigerators and other items and they see it as, well, this president is actually doing something for us, and he is getting the votes. >> a trade off, too, because the people who are given the homes, they criticize the government, they take them away. >> well, the writing is on the wall, and every time we see one of the live shows in which the president gives away the houses, you see the people saying all of the most beautiful things that you can think of, and chavez is my commander, and he's my benefactor and so good for the people and so good, but not once have i seen anybody say anything wrong about chavez, and that tells you a lot. >> and he also recently awarded an apartment to a woman who became his 3 millionth twitter follower, and he is a big twitter follower. >> yes, he is wildly popular and the message is getting through to twitter again, and he did this, and he is rewarding somebody for being the 3 millionth follower. >> can you imagine if president obama or mitt romney were giving away homes on live television? >> no. >> thank you, miguel. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.co
with rob marciano there in burnettsville, indiana. and tell us what you have been seeing there in the fields. how bad is it? >> well, suzanne, it is sparse. of all of the states that are in the cornbelt, indiana, has been hit the hardest with the heat, and with the drought. i mean, yesterday, indianapolis hit another record high of 101 degrees and the last 46 days, they have had less than 0.01 of rain. and that breaks a record. we are 2 1/2 hours north of indianapolis, but that is not going to help. you need feet of rain, but it may be too little too late. we have been talking to the farmers all morning, and they are struggling with this, because there has not been a drought like this since 1988. here is what the folks who own this land had to say earlier today. >> the news keeps referring to the drought of '88, and i guess at this point that we are probably better at this date, but we have potential to be much worse until we get major rainstorms coming through. >> so, then they need major rain and i happening today where we will be close to 100 degrees again. this is wha
democracy in america, it talks about when congress gets the point where it can drive the public by using the public treasury, this is what you have. you have this exorbitant growth of the federal government. we are promising more and more largess to the american people. how does that work out? how did it work for greece or italy or ireland or spain? i know we are on c-span right now. this is the question you should always posed to liberals. where has what you believe in ever been successful in the world? [applause] >> who has got a mike? >> thank you for being here. could you give us some insight i believe it was last year, president obama had met with jewish leaders behind closed doors at the white house. could you give us some insight as far as what you think whether or obama's support for israel is one of the biggest things? >> i don't speculate. as president of the united states of america, how many times has he been to israel? how many times has he been to give major speeches in islamic countries? in turkey and in cairo. i think that you see what the ramifications thereof. that is w
, in some ways, it is not a problem. the ambush protected vehicle that they use in iraq and afghanistan, it was something that the hill prioritize because people were getting blown up by ied's. there is a proper role for congress exercising decision-making and imposing some things on executive office and institutions. how to deal with the rest? management, either. there is not a golden bullet that is going to resolve this problem permanently. something that someone will have to wrestle with on a case-by-case basis. at least my opinion is going to be that you have to hope that the governors i have already outlined are sufficient. but most of those things don't come into the budget. >> we should probably clarify that, you know, when people present in arguments, pros and cons, the majority responds favorably to both. so it is not that most people are carrying around a very discrete human of i think defense should be cut and i am looking for signs that this candidate is for organs that. it is not that articulated. it is more because they say oh, yeah, that's true, oh, okay, now have to make
